molly hold me

  • *in a cab; on the way to the christening*
  • Molly: *happily* Oh isn't this exciting? I bet she looks lovely. And John and Mary are wonderful parents...
  • Sherlock: *on his phone* Mmm.
  • Molly: *sighs* Oh, her name is just beautiful *giggles* I always wanted to name my daughter Persephone.
  • Sherlock: *glances at her*
  • Molly: *rolls her eyes* Hey, I was eleven at the time and really into all that mythology stuff.
  • Sherlock: *still typing* There are worse names for a child than Persephone Holmes.
  • Molly: ...
  • Molly: *raises an eyebrow* Why would it be Holmes?
  • Sherlock: *shrugs* I always assumed you'd take your husband's name.
  • Molly: *scoffs* Yeah, well, I'm not going to marry Mycroft!
  • Sherlock: *confused* We've been sleeping together and you think-
  • Molly: *giggles* No, I mean, I just thought you weren't the marrying kind.
  • Sherlock: *sighs* Sex, Molly. I don't do that with just anyone.
  • Molly: *raises an eyebrow* You love me?
  • Sherlock: Obviously.
  • Molly: *smirks* I'm sorry? I didn't catch that.
  • Sherlock: *smiles* I love you.
  • Molly: *takes his hand* I love you too.
  • Sherlock: *coughs* So you'll...marry me, then?
  • Molly: *kisses his cheek* Of course I will.
☃Boxing Day☃
  • : : I HOPE EVERYONE HAD A LOVELY CHRISTMAS! WE'RE ONE STEP CLOSER TO THE SPECIAL AND, DARE I SAY IT, SHERLOLLY? XX

  • *dinner with the Holmes'*
  • Mummy Holmes: *smiling* So, Molly, it's lovely to finally meet you. Sherlock's told us all about you.
  • Molly: *blushes* Really?
  • Sherlock: *laughs awkwardly* Eat the sprouts, mother.
  • Daddy Holmes: *nods* Mmm, always on about your adventures. He really looks forward to seeing you.
  • Sherlock: *loudly* Carrots, anyone?
  • Molly: *giggling* Well, I-
  • Mummy Holmes: Never shuts up, does he, dear?
  • Daddy Holmes: Yeah, well, that's nothing new.
  • Molly: *laughs*
  • Sherlock: *rubbing his forehead*
  • Mycroft: *sighs* For God's sake, Sherlock just tell Molly you love her so we can end this. Please. I'm begging you!
  • Sherlock: ...
  • Molly: ...
  • Mummy Holmes: ...
  • Daddy Holmes: ...
  • Mycroft: *clears his throat* Potatoes?
Surprise!
  • *midnight, Bart's morgue*
  • Sherlock: *examining body*
  • Molly: *stifles yawn*
  • John: *awkward* We really appreciate this, Molly. Thanks for staying on *pause; kicks Sherlock* Don't we?
  • Sherlock: *still looking* Mmm.
  • Molly: *rolls her eyes* I took some dirt and blood samples, they're in the lab as we speak. She was clearly an active woman...liked walking her dogs, going for morning runs; there's no external wound or history of medical problems-
  • Sherlock: *watching her* She got on well with her ex-husband, they share custody of their children. But she was a rich woman, owned an art gallery *moves to stand next to her* Rivalry; very easy to poison a busy woman.
  • John: *swivelling his eyes like he's watching a tennis match*
  • Molly: *nods; rubbing her eyes* Yeah, I suppose...it definitely wasn't a robbery; all of her possessions were found in her purse. I think-
  • Sherlock: *kisses her*
  • John: *raises his eyebrows*
  • -several moments later, or when Sherlock & Molly have finally stopped snogging-
  • Molly: *blushing furiously; squeaks* Wh-what was that for?
  • Sherlock: *clears his throat* You, um, you've quite the brain, Molly Hooper. In that, the head...of yours. Under all that hair. Somewhere *blushing also*
  • Molly: *smiles* Are you blushing?
  • Sherlock: No. Come, John, we have to... *promptly leaves the morgue*
  • John: *still staring incredulously at Sherlock as they leave*
  • -LATER-
  • *buzz*
  • Molly: *removes her phone; reads text* Bring results to Baker Street. The case may be almost wrapped but we haven't started the debriefing yet. SH
  • Molly: *giggles*
  • *buzz*
  • Molly: *reads text* Shut up. SH
